JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Some preschools and day care providers in Jackson are planning to be closed when the full solar eclipse occurs on Aug. 21.

At least five preschools and day care providers will be closed that day while others say they haven't decided. Others have decided to remain open.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports ( that some of those closing cited safety concerns, noting that congested roads could delay emergency medical response.

The eclipse is expected to bring 100,000 additional visitors to Jackson and the surrounding areas.

But with the hospitality industry being all hands on deck to cater to the expected tourism boom, many parents are going to be working long hours and might not have the luxury of bringing their kids with them.
